CBSE students protest against paper leak, one approached SC
New Delhi : CBSE paper leak came as a shocking news to students, parents and teachers. Today, a group of students staged protest outside Central Board of Secondary Education office in Delhi against the leak of Class 10 Math and Class 12 Economics question papers. Also, a student approached Supreme Court against the CBSE’s re-examination decision.
Angry students protested near the CBSE office in Preet Vihar and tried to block the road in front of the office but the police force has controlled the situation. "The students tried to block the road in front of the CBSE office, but we kept them away. A group of about 25-30 students are protesting outside the CBSE office," said a senior Delhi Police officer.
On the other hand, a CBSE student in Cochin approached the apex court against the decision of the CBSE to cancel and re-conduct the Mathematics exam held on March 28 over the question paper leak.
Known as Rohan Mathew, he sought the court's direction to the education board to publish results on the basis of already held examination. He also appealed for setting up of a special high-powered committee to conduct a detailed investigation into the case.
As of now, CBSE has announced a re-examination of the Class 12 Economics paper on April 25, while the re-exam for the Class 10 Mathematics paper may be conducted in July, only for Delhi-NCR and Haryana students.
Education Secretary Anil Swarup said that an initial enquiry had revealed that the leak for the Class 10 Mathematics paper was restricted to Delhi and Haryana. Therefore, re-test will be taken on particular region, rather than conducting globally.
CBSE has registered two paper leak cases, so far. The Crime Branch of Delhi Police has probed nearly 60 people, including students and tutors, in connection to the case.
